Bob Schmidt of ABC News was with the 3rd Infantry Division when it captured Baghdad Airport:
“Reporting from the tarmac of Saddam International Airport,…Schmidt said the airport was in pitch darkness as coalition tanks entered the facility.
“U.S. forces encountered very little Iraqi resistance, said Schmidt, although some units of the 3rd Infantry Division did encounter scattered firing by Iraqi foot soldiers and men in pickups.
“He reported seeing Iraqis waving and cheering as U.S. tanks rolled toward the airport which is just 10 miles from central Baghdad.”
U.S. troops continued advancing toward the center of Baghdad.
